As far as Gaminator slots (made by Novomatic) go, the Dolphin's Pearl game demonstrates everything that is good. Cute graphics, nice game play and a 15 free spin bonus with 3X multipliers and re-triggers!
Underwater delights are a frequent theme in the world of slot design and for the most part, the developers tend to not digress from the typical interpretation of the theme.
Known for their classic approach and the designing style that inclines towards the more traditional aesthetics, Novomatic developed the theme in an unsurprising manner, placing the reels against blue surface and featuring marine life representatives as the main symbols.
As expected, the Dolphin is the icon with the highest payout potential, followed by the Pearl Scatter, Crab, Stingray, Fish and Seahorse. Symbols with lower value are A, K, Q, J, 10 and 9.
Gameplay, betting range and return to player percentage
Dolphin's Pearl has 5 reels, 3 rows and 9 manually adjustable paylines. The player can manually select the number of lines before each spin or activate the Auto Spin mode which will start the autoplay on the same number of spins and with the same bet amount until the mode is ended.
The maximum bet on a single line is 500 coins, which makes the wager limit 4,500 coins per spin. Those who would like to start slow, at least until they get to feel the slot's pulse, can reduce the number of bets to 1 coin.
Every time you manage to form a winning combination, optional Gamble feature will be activated (the same option is not available in Auto mode), offering a chance to double the winning amount if you guess the colour of the card facing down. Up to 6 guesses are allowed, and the amount that can be gambled depends on the bet level. In a long run, players can expect between 95.13% and 96.18% turnover.
Dolphin Wild is slot's highest paying symbol, producing a payout of 9,000 coins for a combination of 5. In addition to that, the icon can replace all other symbols - except for the Scatter - and when that happens, the value of the combination that's completed with the Dolphin will be doubled.
Scatter Pearl icon can land anywhere on the reels, activating 15 Free Spins that are played with the triggering spin bet. If the 3-Scatter icon combination is formed during the bonus rounds, the feature will be re-triggered and any bonus spin winnings will come with the x3 multiplier.
Strong and weak points of Dolphin's Pearl slot
Dolphin's Pearl can definitely be categorised as one of the more generous Novomatic slots, thanks to the re-triggerable Free Spins which triple every bonus win. Another advantage is x2 multiplier awarded for the combinations that include the Wild Dolphin icon.
What's not so hot is a rather linear gameplay that does not offer a lot of excitement; still, one has to keep in mind that Dolphin's Pearl slot was released in 2001 and that recent Novomatic releases show a lot of visual improvement in comparison. After all, even one year can make a lot of difference in the field of game design.
All things considered, Dolphin's Pearl is a great slot in its own right.
The total payout and the return to player percentage are quite decent, especially thanks to the fact that every combo with the Wild icon will double the payout.
What's even greater is the fact that the bonus spins can be re-triggered and multiple all the winnings by 3. With the bets set on maximum, every single spin can result in a substantial winning, especially for those who are brave enough to use the Gamble feature and double the entire amount up to 6 times.
